Bi-directional communication between the Amicus Separator and Phelix Device allow for easy control of the system.

The Amicus Separator’s single-use disposable kit combined with the Phelix Photoactivation Device create an online, closed system to perform photopheresis. The patient remains connected to the Amicus device throughout the procedure. After photoactivation, Amicus reinfuses the treated cells back to the patient.

The Phelix Photoactivation Device is used to provide extracorporeal photoimmunotherapy when used in conjunction with the Amicus Separator Device.

The Phelix Device promotes safety and performance utilizing multiple sensors to ensure consistent temperature, mixing and UV-A light exposure.
